Here's something unique to consider for Mother's Day and Teacher's Day. A pot cake! It's basically cake in a shape of a planter's pot, covered in terracota-like sugarpaste and topped with your favourite (or your mother's) flowers! Featured here are apple blossoms in burgandy, also made from sugar paste. For your children's favourite teachers, you can have them individually-boxed, ribboned and gift-tagged.
Mini cupcakes were used to fashion these much-loved bugs to accompany the pot of blossoms. For an extended family celebration of Mother's Day for instance, you can have a pot cake for every mother/grandmother while other family members are represented by the bumble bees and lady bugs. It'll look beautiful when the pots of flowers are surrounded by these striking bugs on a 'grass' surface!
Mother's Day will be on May 9, 2010 and Teacher's Day on May 14, 2010 (dates may vary from school to school in Malaysia).
